My boyfriend and I had sex about 2 hours ago, he pulled out and I felt cum on me, but he said he may of came inside me a little. I am on birth control and have been for a year, haven't missed any pills, and washed my vagina out pretty well when I got home about 15 minutes later. Should I take Plan B? Some other articles say it may just mess up my cycle. Any advice :(
Plan B is less effective than the birth control you are already taking, would be wasted and it would mess up your cycle. When you are taking oral birth control nothing else is needed to prevent pregnancy. Condoms however will provide a degree of protection against STI's.
Pulling out before ejaculation is a token at best and almost totally pointless.
Why would you think you need Plan B?? If you are on birth control pills already THERE IS NO NEED FOR PLAN B!!! If you are taking your birth control pills correctly you have a less that 1% chance of pregnancy. Birth control pills are 99.9% effective when taken correctly. They prevent your ovaries from releasing an egg and no egg cell=no baby no matter how much sperm is present. Plan B is even less effective than your routine birth control. I dont know why everyone seems to think Plan B is the "be all, end all" in birth control. Routine birth control is waaay more effective than Plan B. And I agree with the above posters-never ever douche or squirt water in your vagina. There is rarely a reason for douching.
You dont have to worry because you are on the Pill but if you were not, douching can actually propel sperm higher into your reproductive organs not wash it out-please dont do that anymore. It isnt going to do anything to prevent pregnancy (If women could wash away sperm that easily we wouldnt need birth control) and it could cause an infection because it changes vaginal pH. The vagina cleanses itself.
